The Susan B. Anthony dollar is a United States coin minted from 1979 to 1981, and again in 1999. It depicts woman's suffrage campaigner Susan B. Anthony. The reverse depicts an eagle flying above the moon (with the Earth in the background), a design adapted from the Apollo 11 mission insignia that was also present on the previously issued Eisenhower dollar.

Varieties:

  • 1979-P Narrow and Wide Border: This highly collectible variety is noted by the distance between the rim and peripheral design elements, most prominently between the date and rim. Because of this, this variety is sometimes referred to as "Far Date" and "Near Date". This is actually inaccurate as the date was not moved, but instead the border was widened. They are also often referred to as "Narrow Rim" and "Wide Rim". The Mint began striking the 1979-P SBA Dollars with the "narrow border". Late in 1979 the border was widened to give the coin a more aesthetic appearance. The "narrow border" variety is found on all 1979 dollars from all of the mints. The 1979 "wide border" variety can only be found on the "P" mint issues. The "wide border" variety was used for the remainder of the series.
  • 1979-S "Type-1" This is the Mint Mark some suggest was placed in use as early as 1968. It was also used for all business strike 1979-S Susan B. Anthony dollars and the majority or the proof coin mintages for all denominations in 1979. It is characterized by an indistinct to almost blob-like appearance (extremely blob-like on the later stages). It may come with or without clear fields or "attachments" within the center loops depending on the amount of punching pressure utilized to sink the image into the die and/or the amount of polishing the die receives. This is the more common variety for the year.
  • 1979-S "Type-2" This Mint mark was introduced in the later part of 1979 for proof coinage production (and referred to as Ty-2 for this year). It exhibits large bulbous serifs and rounder center loops than found on the Ty-1. In spite of the fact that this variety is frequently and inaccurately referred to as "Clear S", it may come with or without clear fields or "attachments" within the center loops depending on the amount of punching pressure utilized to sink the image into the die and/or the amount of polishing the die receives. It does, however, have a greater tendency to be found with "clearer fields" within the loops than the Ty-1, but this is not a determining factor of type.
